The Stuart SD160 Hotplate by Cole Parmer has plate dimensions of 160mm by 160mm with heating across the full surface area. The maximum temperature is 325°C; power consumption is 0.7kW. The top plate is made from aluminium-silicon alloy, which is sturdy, durable and conductive, providing uniform heat distribution across the plate area. The digital microprocessor controller enables fast and precise plate heating. Actual plate and set temperature are shown simultaneously.
Suitable for use with multiple or one large vessel or microscope slides. The aluminium body is designed to be stable and divert any spillages away from the operator. An independent safety circuit provides Over-temperature protection, and the internal electronics are protected by a corrosion-resistant coating, enabling unattended use. If the plate temperature exceeds 50°C, a visible light warns the operator of the surface heat.
Operation is by the dial at the front of the hotplate. Switch on and off by pushing the dial. Turning clockwise will increase the set temperature and anticlockwise reduces. This simple functionality allows quick temperature setting and control to 1°C resolution.
